About the Journal


JOURNAL of DESIGN for RESILIENCE in ARCHITECTURE and PLANNING (DRArch) is free, open access, scholarly international, e-journal that considers original research articles, viewpoints, book reviews in peer-reviewed. Resilience means the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties with the ability to adapt. Journal of Design for Resilience in Architecture and Planning (DRArch) is not only on the concept of resilience design mentioned in the literature but also on the anticipation of future designs because, in the rapidly changing and transforming the modern world, it is of vital importance to be able to adapt to change, to develop innovative tools, to use technology for people and the environment, dealing with flexibility, durability, mobility, humanity. The future of urban societies would be probably built on this basis. Today, buildings and cities are under various pressure of the destructive forces of natural disasters and urban warfare such as extensive fires, storms, destructive earthquakes, floods, military conflicts. Architects and planners must gain competence in dealing with such crisis conditions through great exposure to sudden changes -like COVID 19 we have been currently experiencing-, increased uncertainties and instabilities within the societal and economic, and cultural systems.



DRArch's objectives are:     

- to question how future building technologies are revolutionizing architectural design, city planning, urban design, landscape design, industrial design, interior design, and education.

- to catalyze the processes that lean on interdisciplinary and collaborative design thinking, creating a resilient thinking culture.

- to improve the quality of the built environment through encouraging greater sharing of academicians, analysts, and specialists to share their experience and answer for issues in various areas, which distributes top-level work

- to discover the role of the designers and design disciplines -architecture, city planning, urban design, landscape design, industrial design, interior design, education, and art- in creating building and urban resilience

- to retrofit the existing urban fabric to produce resilience appears and to support making and using technology within the building arts

- to discuss academic issues about the digital life and its built-up environments, internet of space, digital in architecture, digital data in design, digital fabrication, software development in architecture, photogrammetry software, information technology in architecture, Archi-Walks, virtual design, cyberspace, experiences through simulations, 3d technology in design, robotic construction, digital fabrication, parametric design and architecture, Building Information Management (BIM), extraterrestrial architecture, artificial intelligence (AI) systems, Energy efficiency in buildings, digitization of human, the digitization of the construction, manufacturing, collaborative design, design integration, the accessibility of mobile devices and sensors, augmented reality apps, and GPS, emerging materials, new constructions techniques,

-to express new technology in architecture and planning for parametric urban design, real estate development, and design, parametric smart planning (PSP), more human-centered products,  sustainable development, sustainable cities, smart cities, vertical cities, urban morphology, urban aesthetics, and townscape, urban structure, and form, urban transformation, local and regional identity, design control and guidance, property development, practice, and implementation.
